Climbing On The Spectrum
What is Climbing On The Spectrum?
An opportunity to grow, make friends, and learn a skill! Climbing on the Spectrum creates an inclusive space that fosters connection and comfort for people with autism while focusing on the sensory-motor skill development that climbing can provide. It is designed for neurodivergent youth, 12 – 16 years old, who are new to climbing.
This 8-week program draws on therapeutic techniques and aims to be a social-focused intervention. Designed keeping the sensory and instructional needs of autistic folks in mind, the program will run every Sunday from 8 am-10 am and will be supported by trained staff and volunteers.
An official diagnosis is not required for participation! We understand accessibility to diagnosis is a privilege and encourage individuals who do not have one but believe they would benefit from the program to reach out.
If you have any questions or would like more information about the program feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Based on the policies of Autism Ontario and with the aim of being inclusive, respectful, and representative of the many voices within our diverse community, we will use both identity-first and person-first referential language. We acknowledge that the use of language evolves rapidly and will continue to be an ongoing discussion within the autism community.
